YES Forum Policy Event, Brussels, 21-22 November

Under the title: Why so serious? EU politics can be fun! YES Forum organised a policy event on 21-22 November in Brussels

29/11 2018

About 50 guests joined our annual YES Forum policy event. The focus of this year’s event was to share and discuss the YourEP experiment, how to make political education more inclusive and accessible towards all youth, and exchange thoughts with policy makers and EU representatives on how to open their own initiatives, policies to address the wider audience.

Following interactive presentations, there was room to reflect in roundtables, how the diverse youth can present engagement and participation in society and to make all voices heard, especially those of young people facing multiple life challenges. Guests from the EU institutions themselves met the audience to promote the EU institutions’ own efforts towards youth and discuss how to improve these, especially how to make them more accessible for all youth (e.g. European Youth Event, Discover EU, #ThisTimeImVoting Campaign).
